This time we are off to Tor by Q, his entry into the rookie contest is a fun one with plenty of challenge since every green is surrounded by at least 20-30 yards of green fringe (which, in case you didn't already know, plays much differently than fairway or green). Should make for plenty of run up to pins by good shots, and run off by errant shots. Lots of ground game in play I'd expect. Definitely going to need to go into this one thinking links-ish golf. Get the ball on the ground, use the slopes to your advantage, survive the other slopes that are flat out rude.

Found the course ok, felt it was a bit gimmicky, like courses used to be made for 1st game to try and cut high scoring, absolutely hated the lighting in rds 1&2, if my score somehow squeeks in (which I doubt) I hope its brighter for the weekend.
Played ok, tempo is up the spout for some reason, keep receiving an ruddy HB error code after nearly every other hole, but apart from 1 bogey in rd2 (customary, as you all know) left maybe a few out there over the course of 36H's but im not complaining.
-16 after 36H's will wait and see.
The Chef whats on the menu? actually you better cook for 2 as twofor22 maybe joining me in the missed cut, sorry greenkeepers hut.
If the weather holds. I’ll break out the smoker bbq on the 18th
Break it out I call the burnt ends.
Sorry folks for the lighting, basically works as a gamma level check for your monitor. Was in a bit of a rock and a hard place with this one, brighter lighting hid too much of the slopes making it harder to predict landing zones so I ultimately went for the darker lighting as the lesser of two evils.
Kinda wanted to design a quirky irish links course here that defended itself without length or hazards while Ive been working on an even bumpier real course recreation that does the same!

Good luck everyone!
Just finished my first two rounds. I honestly thought HB/2K put out a patch to give the topography around the greens. LOL
This makes much more sense, of course.
Anyways, have a -16 score after two with 2 or so hours to go and sweating the cut at t61st.
Yep and I managed a -11 third round to move up the leaderboard a bit. Nice to make a cut after missing the last two, but I probably wasn't expecting to on this course. Probably finish it off tomorrow, still got the last two tst rounds to go as well.

Q don't know what the difference was between rds 1&2 to rds 3&4 but with the sun out i could actually make out the fairway and with that i began to appreciate the course much more, my initial thoughts of it feeling a bit gimmicky subsided and I think it is absolutely fantastic to play. Kudos for creating it.
TCRBrad: Hey if anyone wants to BETA test a course for me - go check out Portree Isle - Old BETA1 and enjoy some Links golf

Doyley: We're aware WGR points didn't get handed out last week - not intentional and we're fairly confident we can retro fix that - will let you know if/when that is done.

Doyley: should return to the normal schedule you set up for the next one. Apologies for the slight error.

Doyley: Just an FYI - for those that chose the recurring donation option - we had a slight issue with the recurring portion of it that is now fixed. It's likely if you had a previous recurring donation skipped (the first one always worked) it was sent in today

Doyley: We'll obviously be holding off on any next season talk until after the info is out on 22nd - we can make a plan of attack after we find out if it's a release day or a release date (in the future)

theclv24: I figured it might be interesting to a few folks here, and I Ihaven't gotten huge turnout on the raffles so a $10 gives you a decent chance to win.
